Joint & Drill Collar Compound


MOLYSLIP ZN60 is a water-resistant, high-pressure assembly and thread compound based on highly refined, low sulphur content mineral oil thickened with lithium soap and formulated to incorporate 60% metallic zinc. The product is specifically designed to prevent ‘cold welding’ of shoulder/collar joints and seizure of threaded connections on oilfield equipment such as Drill pipe/collars, Saver-sub to top drive connections, X-Overs, Production tooling, Ball joint shoulder connections, etc.

The product is formulated to meet the requirements of *API RP 7G.

The excellent lubricating properties of MOLYSLIP ZN60 reduces friction during assembly preventing galling, ‘pick-up’, seizure and wear and facilitates easier breakout for routine maintenance. The inclusion of anti-corrosion and anti-oxidant additives makes the product particularly suitable for use under the most aggressive conditions in corrosive wet/humid, dirty or chemical environments where a high degree of water washout resistance is required, and effective over a wide temperature range.

*API RP 7G – “Recommended Practice for Drill Stem Design and Operating Limits”.
